The 300-350 Show: Dr Pachauri on livestock and climate change




We are delighted to present a recording of a lecture by joint Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Chair of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr Rajendra Pachauri. Dr Pachauri has made news recently by advocating eating less meat as a personal contribution to combating the problem of global warming and climate change. This advice has its basis in a recent report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation entitled "Livestock's Long Shadow" which showed that beef and dairy farming was responsible for a massive 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions - more than the entire global transport sector. The lecture is entitled "Global Warning - The impact of meat production and consumption on climate change."

The 300-350 Show is named after what is now believed to the safe level in parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This finding is based on the work of James Hansen and his team in a paper titled "Target Atmospheric CO2: Where Should Humanity Aim." http://arxiv.org/abs/0804.1126
